My Intern's Eyes - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: In the intro, JD comes running back into the shot after trying to change out of the same exact outfit Dr Cox is wearing. JD has the "Baby Gap" TShirt stuck & wrapped around his head turban style. The shot switches to over his shoulder and the shirt is now loose, like a towel wrapped around his head.

My Five Stages (2) - S5-E13

Revealing mistake: When Kelso hits Dr Hendrick's bike with his car at the end, you can tell it is not Kelso. While you can't make out his face, you can see that the man driving has dark black hair, while Kelso has light brown/grey hair.

My New Suit - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: As JD is unwrapping the patients head while talking to the Janitor, he completely unwraps the gauze and there is 3-4 inches of hair showing. The shot changes and suddenly the head has gauze on it again and only about an inch of hair is visible above the bandage.

My Day At The Races - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: In the scene where J.D. first starts the bike portion of the triathlon, you can see his feet pedaling. You can see that there is no chain on the gears, allowing him to exaggerate the speed he is pedaling.

My Jiggly Ball - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When JD is trying to free his hand from the glass bottle beating it on the pole, his sleeve shirt is first lowered and then raised in two different shots.

My Jiggly Ball - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When JD is in the wheelchair talking to Dr Cox and he almost tells him he was a gymnast in high school, a female doctor in a white coat is walking in his direction behind him. One shot later she's gone, and a few shots after that she's back walking in the same direction. (00:02:55)

Suggested correction: That's the joke. There are multiple references to Elliot looking like Gary Busey on the show and this is yet another example of it. The initial shot shows a picture of Elliot, JD recognises it as Elliot, she corrects him and when it cuts back it is now a picture of Gary Busey.

My Rite of Passage - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the end after JD tells the interns he wants them all to wave, they all start waving their arms. The shot cuts to a different view and Rex's hands are instantly back on the table.

Dr. Cox: People are bastard covered bastards with bastard filling.
